This week we reunite and head to the theaters to see Halloween Kills (2021). We unpack its approach to mob mentality, break down the intensity of The Shape's violent rage, and examine the film's parallels with Halloween II (1981) and Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988). In this episode's b-side, we discuss what makes our ideal slasher film cast or final girl, Paris and Ryan struggle to remember characters from the 1978 film, and Kris shares observations about how Ryan felt The Power of Dolby™️. This episode contains spoilers, beginning at 39:58.
